Showcasing the Beautiful Rose Queen Die Set from Altenew - A Birthday Card for My Crafty Friend

Hi peeps.

I have had a little break from crafting due to house renovations and the lead up to my birthday.   Just the new conservatory to be installed next week and then I can concentrate on getting ready for Christmas !!

Anyway, today I am sharing a card I recently made for a lovely crafty friend of mine, which I can now share as she has also now had her birthday and is in receipt of this one.  She tells me she loved it and that's a big compliment, because I am a great fan of her cards.

For Jane's card I used the new Rose Queen Die Set from Altenew, along with the Grid Cover Die.

I die cut the Rose Queen image twice - once in white and once in gold card.   On the white die-cut  I coloured all the petals and leaves with a selection of Altenew Artist Marker pens.  I popped the gold outline piece onto the Grid die-cut, but before doing so, I added some splatters of gold Alcohol ink.  I then paper pieced all the coloured pieces; rather like filling in a jigsaw puzzle.

I was really pleased with the outcome, and think that I will be getting a lot of mileage from both sets of dies used on this card.   The sentiment is from the Garden Rose Craft Your Life Project Kit.

That's it from me for today.  Hope you like Jane's card.

Thanks for stopping by, and please pop back again.

Off for a nice mug of coffee !!   Bye for now and ......................"happy crafting everybody!"

  1. I don't like this card Linda. I LOVE it!! I am a big fan of cover plates as a background and this one is perfect for this flower.
